It is reliable with a luxury feel

It is a highly reliable vehicle, it starts when I need it to and doesn't cause me many issues. Only real complaint would be the mileage.

- Edward S

Comfortable vehicle with some electrical issues.

Electrical issues. Good motor. Comfortable seating. Has memory seating, rainsense windshield, heated seats, tow package.

- Natalie F

I love it and it's perfect for me and my family.

Gas mileage is pretty good. Had an fuel injection issue that was placed on recall. Company paid for issue to be fixed.

Safety Recalls (3)

Fuel System, Gasoline Sep 20, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 20, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V583000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2004-2007 Touareg vehicles. These gasoline-powered vehicles have a fuel filter flange that may crack, allowing fuel to leak.
Consequence:
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel filter flange for cracks, replacing the flange if cracks are found. If no cracks are found, a protective cover will be installed onto the filter flange. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Parts are not currently available, but owners will be notified of the recall beginning November 19, 2017. A second notice will be sent when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 20Ai.
Seat Belts > Rear May 14, 2004
Report Receipt Date:
May 14, 2004
NHTSA Campaign:
04V233000
Summary:
ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, THE REAR SEAT BELT LATCH ATTACHMENT BOLT MAY HAVE BEEN INSUFFICIENTLY RIVETED.
Consequence:
IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE SEAT OCCUPANT MAY NOT BE PROPERLY RESTRAINED INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE BELT BUCKLE. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN ON JUNE 21, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987.
Seat Belts Dec 10, 2004
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 10, 2004
NHTSA Campaign:
04V592000
Summary:
CERTAIN PASSENGER CARS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 208, "OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION." ALL THREE REAR SEAT POSITIONS AND THE FRONT PASSENGER POSITION ARE EQUIPPED WITH SEAT BELT RETRACTORS THAT HAVE A LOCKING FEATURE WHICH CONVERTS THE RETRACTOR FROM AN EMERGENCY LOCKING RETRACTOR (ELR) MODE TO AN AUTOMATIC LOCKING RETRACTOR (ALR) MODE FOR THE PURPOSES OF CHILD RESTRAINT INSTALLATION. THE BELT MAY DEACTIVATE THE ALR MODE WITH CERTAIN CHILD RESTRAINTS.
Consequence:
WHEN INVOLVED IN A CRASH, THE CHILD RESTRAINTS MAY NOT BE PROPERLY SECURED, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURIES OR DEATH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL PERMANENTLY INSTALL A 'CLIP' IN EACH OF THE TWO REAR OUTBOARD SEAT BELTS. THE CLIPS WILL PREVENT UNWANTED DEACTIVATION OF THE ALR MODE WITH CHILD SEAT INSTALLATIONS. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 28, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT VW AT 1-800-822-8987.
